Siloam Springs


This year marks the charter of the American Legion by Congress in 1919. The historic Legion Post 29 in Siloam Springs is celebrating the centennial with flying colors.


Joe Woolbright, director of Ozark Ecological Restoration, in collaboration with John Brown University and the city of Siloam Springs, has installed a new bird watching habitat on Siloam Springs City Lake Park.  A formal dedication and public opening is planned later this summer.

About a year after breaking ground, Siloam Springs' Memorial Park will open to the public May 25. A ribbon cutting is scheduled for 10 a.m. and will be followed by three free concerts throughout the day. The new park includes an ampitheater, concession stand, water feature and a new home for the farmers market.

In an effort to educate the public about residential sprinkler systems, the Siloam Springs Fire Department is hosting a live burn demonstration. The event begins at 11 a.m. May 23 at Fire Station #1, which is located at 1450 Cheri Whitlock Dr.  

The inaugural Art in the Springs Art Walk begins at 5 p.m. Thursday in downtown Siloam Springs. We speak with LaKay Dailey, founder and coordinator of the art walk, to learn more about the new event.
